According to the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH), Maryland state law requires school aged children to receive vaccinations for DTap, Polio, Hib, Measles, Mumps, and Rubella, Varicella, Hepatitis B, PCV 3 , and Meningococcal (2018). These vaccines are staggered and given at different ages as children grow beginning at less than two months of age through high school age of 17-18 years old. Maryland allows children to be exempt from vaccines for cases of medical contraindications or religious objections. Parents who object to vaccinations due to religious beliefs must present and sign a notarized religious objection certificate stating that because of bona fide religious beliefs, they object to any immunizations being given to their child (MDCVC, 2018). For medical exemptions, a parent must acquired written documentation for a physician that certifies that immunization against a particular disease would be detrimental to a child’s health (MDCVC, 2018).
